. president obama and mitt romney are campaigning across several key states this weekend. both candidates will be in colorado, ohio, iowa, and virginia, while romney will also be making a stop in pennsylvania and new hampshire. and it is taking some voters up to four hours to cast their ballots in florida. one of the election's most crucial swing states. remember, early voting in florida started a week later than it did in 2008 because of a new state law. the republican state legislature reduced the number of early voting days from 14 down to 8. there are just three days left until election day and the presidential race is pretty darn tight. the candidates are making a final push through the swing states, looking for any advantage along the way. joining me now to talk about the president's final flurry is the national communications director for the obama campaign. brent, good morning. thanks for being here with us. tell me, what is the strategy for these last three days? >> look, for this last push, it's pretty simple. we want to be as many places as we can, as many times as we can befor
that plays out over the days. >> it plays for governor romney. both of these guys, you cannot ignore a fact a week from today is the election. charles: right. >> so, he has to do everything he can -- well, the president has to do everything he has to do. charles: how does it help romney. >> criticize iffed he doesn't do his job. he's criticized if he does too much and make it look political. romney is going, i just have to not make it look political right now. >> romney has to focus on what he needs to do for the campaign. this isn't a political situation, this is an american situation, the storm is hurting americans, no matter what their party affiliation, the president has a responsibility as president of the united states, which means, communicate with your governors, you know, people are going to argue whether it hurts or helps him. what matters is the campaign and the final seven days leading into it is going to be how their ground game. charles: but the point is though, david, the president does look like he's doing that job and walking the fine line, being presidential, being attenti
with the biggest whopper of this campaign. i mean we've seen a lot of big lies coming from the romney campaign. i mean on a lot of different topics right? particularly mitt romney trying to have it both ways or three ways on almost every issue. you never know where he really stands on any issue. the biggest lie of all is this lie in the last couple of days, mitt romney is trying to sell the people of ohio -- it doesn't look like they're buying it. the latest poll shows president obama up five still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this
to overtaking the president in several key swing states and both nationally. now, the romney campaign did put out a memo earlier in the week throwing cold water on one ohio state poll they took issue with saying it wasn't properly calibrated but they are also at the same time touting a new "washington post" poll showing mitt romney leading the president nationally and doing very well among independents. at the same time we should p point out that along this tour he has hit a bit of a roadblock. one of his top surrogates, john sununu made some comments when he suggested that colin powell was endorsing the president because of his race. sununu put out a statement saying he believes powell endorsed the president because of his policies. it's not just the tough talk on the campaign trail that we're seeing that is causing things to get a little rocky out here. there is also the prospect of a major storm heading to the east coast. what forecasters have dubbed frankenstorm. it has already caused the romney campaign to reschedule on sunday. no word on when it will be rescheduled. >> thanks very much.
nutter. thanks for coming inside "the war room." up next, president obama and mitt romney are both try hing to avoid politics this week. that doesn't mean politics won't find them. that story is next right here in "the war room." current tv encourages you to vote on november 6th but just as importantly to take the time to learn about each candidate's stance on the issues that matter to you. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. vote smart. our democracy depends on an informed electorate. i look at her, and i just want to give her everything. yeah you -- you know, everything can cost upwards of...[ whistles ] i did not want to think about that. relax, relax, relax. look at me, look at me. three words, dad -- e-trade financial consultants. so i can just go talk to 'em? just walk right in and talk to 'em. dude those guys are pros. they'll hook you up with a solid plan. they'll -- wa-- wa-- wait a minute. bobby? bobby! what are you doing, man? i'm speed dating! [ male announcer ] get inve
. no motorcades there, folks. that means both romney, who is in ohio and iowa today, and the president will probably end up spending more of their time in the midwest than they had planned with possible stops in colorado and florida. second, barring problems with federal disaster response, the president is likely to have a messaging advantage, if you will, as he gets to run are the government. he does run the government. he is the president. he simply has to do his job. by comparison in the next four days, hurricane sandy will replace mitt romney, does he have momentum or not story as the lead of nearly every swing state newspaper and newscast. the lead story will not be something that goes along like today, romney took his message of change to fill in the blank. and finally, the storm could put a premium on mechanics. and while the romney campaign is certainly a lot better than john mccain's 2008 operation, the more this race focuses on mechanics, the better it is probably for the obama campaign. asked whether the storm could affect early voting, the president said that remains to be
. you were to be out campaigning on behalf of the romney ryan ticket. both the presidential contenders have agreed to cancel events in virginia so you can move forward with storm plans. i want to look at polls at how tight it is in the commonwealth. our latest poll has the romney ryan ticket up by two points. there is a new poll out from the washington post which gives the president a four-point advantage in virginia. ultimately boil it down to the average it is a tee right now, 47.8% for each ticket. how does the romney camp close strong and bring home the commonwealth for republicans? >> i do appreciate governor roesterday and checking on the weather situation and agreeing to cancel three events today. the president tomorrow as well. i think it is probably a dead heat but momentum clearly moving towards governor romney and it is because the issues really matter to virginia voters are in romney's favor. the jobs picture. governor romney has a plan. the president presided over 43 months of 8% unemployment. the crushing debt that is going to get worse under the president. governor romne
to shave my mustache. >> there is evidence to back up both and the romney campaign believes momentum. our own history has shown candidates, there are challengers, and the whole thing happens and the whole thing won't move. is that what we're seeing or is this a desperate attempt to what's going on? >> chuck, look at the poll numbers. there is serious tightening in these states, the lean democratic column for quite a while right now. but it is important to note that president obama actually leads still in all of them and, in fact, the margins we're often seeing look close to what john kerry carried those states in 2004 versus 2008. but overall this is something -- this is the recognition the power the super pacs are playing. the pro-romney restore in play. other super pacs going in there and that's opened up things a little bit. the biggest question, why didn't we see these moves months ago? >> let me ask you something, are you concerned -- look, the fact of the matter is and i've done some of the math, it is possible and it's not like an out there scenario, that mitt romney could win the
. before the storm delivered both campaigns this curveball, if you will, mitt romney picked up up a key endorsement from t"the des moines register" that says romney offers a fresh economic position. it's the first support of a republican candidate since nixon. joining me from washington is dominico. normally we would say a hard turn from weather to politics, but i said earlier sandy is the third-party candidate a lot of people have been looking for in that this storm has greatly impacted the travel schedules and what we're seeing including the news coverage of this "des moines register" endorsement which would be a headline today aathp point. how impactful is it when you combine the storm coverage and does it matter what the newspaper editorial board said. >> it won't get the national coverage it would have gotten the day after the weekend, but it is still going to be a big issue in iowa. it's the largest paper in iowa. now all four of the major papers in iowa have all endorsed mitt romney. so i do think that as the president's been looking for -- to stop some of the mitt romney's momen
of the campaign. you know they both of them have been not totally sole on the notion that romney was going to win for most of the time. privately both -- >> is that what's happening? >> i think both of them are looking, to some extent, what comes next. i'm not saying they don't want governor romney to win this election but both skap ceptical his chances for a year and a half. governor christie, not taking anything away from -- i think he was genuinely star struck to be on marine one, but he needs to get re-elected. he has a tough re-election battle. you can't be on the wrong side of president obama in the disaster situation if you're going to win re-election in a blue state in a year from now when he has to run again. >> which, by the way -- >> the only way he can run in 2016 if is he wins again. politics are there. governor bush's politics are different. trying to get himself back into play after having been out for a long time, he's going to be a different hoe down for him and a different way to deal with republican base than the one that chris christie is in. different political paths. >> if m
me quickly about the perils for both of them. obviously, the president is the president. this is his responsibility, to have the concern of the american people on the forefront. what does governor romney do or say, other than this point that he's trying to be sense and pull off the campaign trail tomorrow and not today? >> it's no accident that bill clinton was in orlando. that's a key swing area right in the heart of that i-4 corridor. there was a cnn poll out today showing a 50/49 race between the two sides. pretty much a dead-even race. missing out on a day or two to get people out to the polls can really hurt both campaigns. mitt romney has to walk this fine line and so does the president not wanting to look too political in a situation like this when you could, as bill karins mentioned, see people out of power in the millions potentially for the next few days. >> let's bring chip in on this. you don't want to look too political, but one thing some have noted is governor romney made a couple of phone calms to virginia governor bob mcdonald and chris christie, two republican gover
. the romney campaign and ryan campaign have both cancelled events in virginia beach, virginia, because of hurricane sandy. and tomorrow morning, on our news makers program, kentucky senator rand paul will talk about his support for mitt romney. he'll also talk about his role in congress and his views on u.s. foreign aid. join us on sunday for our live news makers program beginning at 10:00 a.m. eastern right after washington journal here on c-span. >> as we approach election day, c-span is asking middle and high school students to send a message to the president. in a short video, students will answer the question, what's the most important issue the president should consider in 2013. for a chance to win the grand prize of $5,000, with $50,000 in total prizes. >> thank you, st. augustine. i brought the friends with me. this is miles. say hi, miles. and parker, this is my other grandson, parker made his own sign. these are my -- some of my grandkids. i'm so blessed. it's so wonderful to have them with me today and my gorgeous daughter-in-law mary. as you can see, she's expecting another
a last minute play for pennsylvania. this weekend both mitt romney and paul ryan are campaigning in that state. ryan is in harrisburg, pennsylvania, today and tomorrow. romney heading to bucks county. and cnn political editor paul stein houser is live from harrisburg right now. the polls show that romney is narrowing the gap with obama in that state. can he realistically hope to take the state this late in the game? >> reporter: no doubt about it. 90 minutes from me at the airport you'll have paul ryan, the republican running mate holding a rally. yeah, tomorrow mitt romney is going to be in suburban philadelphia. that's the swing part of the state, the part of the state that really determines who wins pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes. the obama campaign is not taking this sitting down. jill biden is coming to pennsylvania to campaign today. and one of the big guns on the obama side, the former president clinton will be campaigning here in pennsylvania on monday. fred, i got here last night. i turned on the tv watching the local news. a lot of campaign ads. you know what? in the
two points. the ohio is ahead in both ohio and virginia in early voting. today mitt romney making multiple stops in the state of florida. yesterday he took a break from campaigning, turning a dayton, ohio rally into a relief event for storm victims on the east coast. >> i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit, the american way to give to people who are in need. and your generosity this morning touches my heart. we won't be able to solve all the problems with our effort this morning, though a lot of people will still be looking for goods even though we've gathered these things as you know, but i know that one of the things i've learned in life is that you make the difference you can and you can't always solve all the problems yourself, but you can make the difference in the life of one or two people. >> president obama focused on hurricane sandy and the damage it left, former president bill clinton picking up the slack taking on some extra campaign events on behalf of the president. today president clinton heads to iowa. but during a stop in minneapolis yeste
about 90 mosts. both the obama campaign and the romney campaign hope the numbers will boost those economic arguments they've been making through this campaign and right into the final days of the race. we have complete coverage of what to expect this morning. let's begin with christine. she's got a look at what we could see. >> could see an unemployment rate that kicks up to about 7.9%. that's the forecast of economists surveyed by cnn money, soledad. 125,000 jobs added overall. for net new job creation. the important thing here is the trend. and it is the trend that has been so important to american families. american workers. and the two political campaigns, quite frankly. the president took office with unemployment rate at 7.8%, soledad. and then embarked on a massive stimulus plan and unemployment rate kept rising to 10%. but then started to come down. started to come down and is now back at 7.8%. and we got that number, of course, last month. and that was a big surprise overall. you look at the job creation. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. t
an impact on both president obama and mitt romney's campaigns. i want to welcome ken rogoff to our panel, harvard university professor of economics and public policy. we'll begin, sir, though, with christine romans. let's talk about how they crunch these numbers. >> the jobs report is actually two sprit surveys, unemployment rate comes from a survey of 60,000 households. the job creation number comes from a survey of 141,000 businesses. to get the unemployment rate, 200 census workers interview 60,000 households in person and over the phone. everyone over the age of 16 is classified as employed, unemp y unemployed or not in the labor force. from that then the government extrapolates the unemployment rate. job creation number comes from another sample, sample of 141,000 businesses. they tell the government how many workers they have on their payroll. like the household survey, the sample is meant to include the whole u.s., including offices, stores. both surveys look the a particular week or pay period usually around the 12th day of the month. this month it was the week of october 7th to
't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. >> sean: as both candidates head into the final stretch of the campaign there is one critical state that could hold the keys not white house for governor romney and that is the state of ohio. historically no republican candidate has won the election without taking this battleground state. the latest poll shows governor romney in a dead heat with the president both at 48% and as obama is relying mainly on the quote auto bailout for a victor arery in the state, voters are more concerned about the overall economy. romney is leading obama when it comes to the handling of the economy. joining us is michael barone. what do you think? >> what is happening in ohio? well, this was one of the three firewall states. the obama campaign wanted to concentrate on three states where they got the lowest winning percentages in 2008 except for indiana and north carolina which they conceded, florida, ohio and virginia. since the october 3 debate, florida seems to be gone toward mitt romney. he has been winning almost all polls this. vir
governor romney in a dead heat with the president both at 48% and as obama is relying mainly on the quote auto bailout for a victor arery in the state, voters are more concerned about the overall economy. romney is leading obama when it comes to the handling of the economy. joining us is michael barone. what do you think? >> what is happening in ohio? well, this was one of the three firewall states. the obama campaign wanted to concentrate on three states where they got the lowest winning percentages in 2008 except for indiana and north carolina which they conceded, florida, ohio and virginia. since the october 3 debate, florida seems to be gone toward mitt romney. he has been winning almost all polls this. virginia has been even tending a little toward romney in my judgment. ohio has been a little stickier. are the auto bailout is an issue there. if you look at the polls what you will see is white noncollege voters. a group that was 58-40 for john mccain nationally four years ago are not giving romney in ohio that much of an edge. and so i think there is some gain that the democrats have
both carriker in much about the military and our troops. i want to make clear to you that mitt romney will do everything, and provide everything that is needed to the united states armed forces to make sure they have everything they need when deployed overseas. host: on twitter, they want to respond to one of our callers. they did say it was an act of terror. mitt romney's precise comment in a recent debate was false. obama did describe the events as an act of terror twice. some officials of the obama administration suggested that the united states had no indication that it was a planned assault. did you have any response to that? guest: i would point out that, several times the obama situation pointed to it being a protest that got out of hand. i do believe that the white house was not straight forward with the american people from the beginning. host: florida, on our independent line. caller: question to the chair person -- and why did the candidates go into the michigan or ohio area and to make a statement about relocating to china? and never retracted the statement or put out anyt
or governor romney to win right now without ohio? can either one win without ohio? >> both can. it's a tougher road for romney. romney, if he loses ohio probably has to put some combination of wisconsin and colorado or colorado, iowa and new hampshire, some combination of states. >> greta: it's possible but not so easy. it's not easy at all for romney. he has to thread the eye of the needle to do it. the president has other ways to get there if he loses ohio. >> greta: joe, thank you. coming up the obama administration, did they deliberately mislead americans about libya. that is the question. new poll asks questions. and just when you think you saw every campaign ad. a new campaign ad will make you wonder if there are any limits. that is just two minutes away. ♪ [ male announcer ] it started long ago. the joy of giving something everything you've got. it takes passion. and it's not letting up anytime soon. at unitedhealthcare insurance company, we understand that commitment. and always have. so does aarp, an organization serving the needs of americans 50 and over for generations. so it's no
romney here again on -- at avon lake at 8:00 p.m. tonight. both president obama and mitt romney have campaign events and through tomorrow. both candidates happened drop off their schedules and it is threatening to alter the outcome of the election. the federal courts will continue to be closed tomorrow. the house and senate will come in for a pro-forma sessions with no legislation scheduled. fema headquarters held a conference call about the storm. mr. fugate said it has enough money for an initial response to the storm. this is half an hour. >> thank you. good afternoon, everyone. thank you for dialing in today. two main administrators, craig fugate and dr. rick knab. each of them will have opening comments and then we will take questions. please limit yourself to one question and no follow-ups. with that, let me turkish -- turned over to the administrator. >> good afternoon. as hurricane sandy keeps approaching and moving closer to the coast, we are going to be rapidly moving from preparing to support response operations. we have been moving commodities, bottled waters, meals, blan
like the president at these places. mitt romney has a problem looking presidential as he visits the damaged area, but he has the advantage of going sxwak forth to some of these swing states and continuing to hammer on the campaign trail. both candidates, regardless of where they are and what they're talking about, have to temper some of the language and fiery rhetoric they throw at their opponents. will this have an impact on the race? absolutely. i don't think we know quite what it is yet. honestly, the republicans are so focused on turnout as are the democrats, that's what's going to change really the impact more this election, is the groups of people out there hitting the doors, making people get out and vote. the get out the vote effort is everything at in the point, because right now the ads are saturated and we have this hurricane in place. getting out the vote is what's key. >> you talk about the impact. we know specifically the impact in maryland for today, that the governor canceled early voting. i had a chance to speak to him in our special primetime coverage last nigh
romney when he got the bad news on the phone. there you can see him getting it right there. both romney and president obama spoke with rubio and, of course, expressed their concern and support for his daughter and his family. >> brian: all right. is this terrorism 101? new york university president requiring her students to plot a terrorist attack for a homework assignment. the professor asked her students to write up 15 pages describing how they would attack the city and what the aftermath would be like, for example, how much it would cost us. former naval criminal investigator says it prepares students for a career in intelligence. but some police officers are calling it an insult to those who died in 9-11. remember, khalid sheikh mohammed was on campus learning about america and plotting against america and so was al-awlaki. >> gretchen: ban on halloween, a number of schools and towns are putting a stop to halloween plans. over the past years, a dozen schools are doing away with costume, parties, other celebrations. you might be asking what would the reason be? some say it's because
learn a lot about campaigns and what's moving by both sides. clearly, when mitt romney runs a g-bad like that, it is clearly false. he knows the auto industry is clearly hurting him and he has to go on offense. this goes to jonathan's point. we know the auto bailout is a big issue in ohio because of mitt romney's ads. the problem for him is that it's a challenge to do a demonstrably false ad. there is a negative consequence to this. when you do an ad like this, you get days and days of newspapers attacking you. >> pinocchio stands on fire, all of that thing. >> you have cleveland and cincinnati papers, front page articles saying he is not telling the truth about this. it has been a high-risk strategy. i don't know if ohio has gone from 3 to 6 as the polls seem to indicate. i think the risk he took in being dishonest bawas a bad ris for him to take. >> what is it that you are hearing personally on the ground in the midwest right now? >> well, you know, you talk to people and, you know, again, i think it is a question of who they think will stand up for them? they look at a guy like mitt r
, both mitt romney and president obama are canceling appearances and otherwise trying to steer clear of the storm's path. a magnitude 7.7 earthquake rattled the western coast of canada early this morning. there are no reports of casualties or major damage. a tsunami warning that was in effect for hawaii has now been downgraded ending the threat of serious damage. in the world series last night the cold weather in detroit had little effect on the red hot san francisco giants. as they shut out the tigers 2-0. the giants now have a commanding three games to none lead and can take the best of seven series with a win tonight. today is mother-in-law day and the new study finds that 50% of americans who have mothers-in-law report that they have a good or great relationship with her. how about the 50%? now for the rest of the country's forecast. it will be cooler across the plains and down into texas. some heavy unnamed storms are likely out west. the week ahead looks mostly dryer once sandy has come and gone. next, confronting our superstitions. and later, actor christopher walken. >> my so

the stage in circleville any time now. we will go live to both those events coming up. first though, some breaking news from florida. the romney campaign announcing just moments ago that they are rescheduling all of mitt romney's virginia events for tomorrow. the gop nominee will instead travel to ohio. all this because of the impending impact of hurricane sandy. we of course are tracking sandy. progress up the east coast. nbc's meteorologist dylan drier in the msnbc studios in new york. ton trung in delaware. we just got the latest advisory from the hurricane center. what can you tell us. >> nothing has changed. this still indicates the storm is a category 1 hurricane and very far out to sea, but still just as huge as it has been. that's why we are still dealing with some potential for stronger wind gusts and decent rain along the coast of south carolina and north carolina. north eastern north carolina and south eastern south carolina will be almost a pivot point for this storm to rotate on. that's going to produce heavy torrential rain in that area. it is moving northeast right now. sti
, joe biden stepped into join former president clinton on stage. both men fired up over a new ad by the romney campaign claiming that automaker jeep is planning to send american jobs to china. that's a claim that chrysler has plainly said is untrue. >> this morning before he left florida and went back to washington, he said, you know, of all the things governor romney has said, that probably hurts my feelings the most. he said you know, i never had any money when i was a kid. and the first new car i ever owned i was 30 years old and it was a jeep. i would never move jeep to china. now it turns out that jeep is reopening in china because they made so much money here they can afford to do it and they are going on with their plans here. they put out a statement today saying it was the biggest load of bull in the world that they would ever consider shutting down their american operations. they are roaring in america thanks to people like the people of ohio. >> he's running an ad in this state saying that, saying that president obama made the companies go bankrupt is now -- gave the i
